When it comes to running sneakers, the best things in life really are free. In 2004, Nike developed the Free technology to support the needs of their track athlethes who preferred to train barefoot. The shoes would force the muscles in the foot to work together, providing less construction and just enough support to prevent injury.
The runner wasn’t just technically innovative, though, as it also allowed for endless colour variations due to the complex panelling on the shoes upper. This year’s autumn releases sport a grey speckled midsole to finish off the tonal burgundy upper. Expect more of these over the coming weeks.
